Cotswold Wildlife Park…

Last Saturday we braved the cold and went to the Cotswolds Wildlife Park with DD2 as a celebration for her upcoming birthday. Last year her birthday was postponed twice.. once because the stomach flu took out the majority of the guests...and twice because of a snowstorm! So it only made sense to seize the day and take full advantage of the sunny weather and give her her birthday gift early.

Along with a trip out DD2 has had a new camera for her birthday.  She caught the photography bug over half term when I let her use my old camera and it made sense to get her her own that she could use.  The wildlife park was the perfect venue to test it out and she very much wanted me to post her pictures for you to enjoy...so here they are.

We have the singing penguins..

The Vulcan Prairie Dogs (my mind to your mind...)

The Inquisitive Giraffe

The Sleeping Wolf

and my favourite picture of the day...the meerkat!

Until next time...♥
